Israeli Police Arrest 4 Palestinians for Murder of American Tourist

Murder victim Kristine Luken

Israeli poice arrested four members of a 13-member cell of Palestinians suspected of shootings, rape and murder. They were caught on the basis of DNA from the crime scene and admitted to murdering Kristine Luken, an American member of an evangelical church in Israel and attempting to murder her friend. Jerusalem Police Commander Shimon Nahum explained how the group started out as a criminal gang but evolved into a terrorist cell motivated by "nationalistic" reasons. Amos Harel of Ha'aretz discusses the thin line between the criminal and the nationalist. More details about the the 13-member terror cell can be found here.

Kay Wilson, the other hiker and a survivor of the attack that killed her American friend, is hailed as a hero by the Shin Bet. She talks about the continuing terror and pain she experiences and the unimaginable barbarism of the Palestinian terrorists.

Where is the outrage at this barbarous act?

Where is Palestinian Authority accountability for the activities of its residents and the failures of its police force?

Where is the State Department’s demand of the Palestinian Authority to safeguard the physical security of U.S. citizens visiting the Palestinian Authority territories?
